  • Method
  • Made by American Weigh, (not to be shortened to AmWeigh), this great little scale is pocket sized, so you can weigh anything up to 500g wherever you are.

    Accurate to 0.1g, this little pocket wonder is perfect for weighing out shots of espresso if you want to keep your brewing ratios in check. It’s slim enough (at 0.8” tall) to fit under your portafilter with a vessel on top of it, and has a speedy update rate so you can keep an eye on your shot weights in real time.

    The SM-500 takes 2 “AAA” batteries and has an auto shutoff after 60 seconds of no activity. The stainless steel design cleans easily for when you inevitably splash a little espresso on it in the heat of the moment. Don’t be embarrassed, just wipe it off and jam it back in your pocket with confidence knowing it won’t get your chinos dirty!

    We love these scales because they have an easy to read LCD backlit digital display, they look slick, and they have a ten year limited warranty.

    • Stainless steel weighing surface

    • Do not exceed the scale's maximum capacity. This scale has integrated overload protection, but any overload protection has its limits!
    • Avoid exposure to extreme heat or cold. Scales perform best at normal room temperature. If temperatures have changed dramatically, recalibration may be necessary.
    • Allow your scale to warm up for 30-60 seconds before performing calibration.
    • Store your scale in a clean, dry location. Dust, dirt, and moisture can accumulate on the weighing sensors and electronics causing inaccuracy and malfunction.
    • Avoid using your scale in close proximity to strong radio wave emitting devices such as cordless phones.
    • Always weigh on a flat and level surface, free from vibrations and drafts.
    • Gently apply all items to be weighed. Do not drop items onto the weighing platform.
    • Avoid dropping your scale. The warranty does not cover damage due to rough treatment or overload.
    • Check the batteries first if you are having any trouble with your scale. This simple step can remedy most scale issues.
    • For best accuracy, calibration should be performed at least once every 12 months, depending on frequency of use. Calibration is already performed at the factory.

Worth every penny

Great scale especially for the price, been using it for a month. It's very precise and quick. Will buy again when this one goes, even more for the price and quality.

Perfect addition for travel coffee kit

Purchased this scale as part of a travel pourover set up for a summer getaway, and found it was the perfect size to rest my klean kanteen mug with a plastic v60 on top of it (yes, a top-heavy and slightly bulky kit). I love the easy to read, lighted display, but as another reviewer noted, it's not the fastest readout (the only knock against it as far as I can tell). Very happy with this purchase.
I'm looking forward to using this for GF baking, where sub-gram measurements are required.

Best portable budget friendly scale.

It is not the most powerful scale - but for price of $20 and how small it is, it serves as great scale to have it in your pocket when commuting to work or on a trip.

Works well for its size

Very happy with the scale, love the size, happy with how it operates

Pretty Unbeatable For the Price

Pros: Small (easily fits underneath my Cafelat Robot, and I'm sure would fit on any drip-tray of any home machine). Screen brightness is great, easily viewable even in bright daylight. Screen viewing angle is good, though not top notch.
Cons: Screen update time is a little slow, you have to preemptively end your shot before the scale reads you ideal shot weight (i.e, ending your shot at 32 grams, and you'll actually achieve 34g.)
